UConn Huskies vs. Indiana Hoosiers

Where: Memorial Stadium, Bloomington, IN

When: Saturday, September 21, 12:00 PM. ET.

The Indiana Hoosiers will be trying to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they host the UConn Huskies in a non-conference matchup on Saturday afternoon.

Huskies Trying To Double Last Year’s Win Total

The Huskies managed to win only one game last season, which is one of the reasons they will go into this game as big underdogs. Despite the low expectations people have for them, the Huskies will try to pick up their second win in their first three games on Saturday night.

The Huskies have played well offensively, but they have not been able to get into the end zone as much as they would like and are averaging 23.5 points per game. With the team going up against an opponent that is averaging 32 points per game, they will need to do a better job avoiding costly mistakes so they can keep the score close and give themselves a chance to pick up the win.

Freshman quarterback Jack Zergiotis is expected to start his second collegiate game after being named the team starter over Michael Beaudry, who was injured in their first game. He completed 21 of 31 passes for 275 yards and two interceptions in the loss to Illinois.

Defensively, the Huskies will have a tough time trying to slow down Indiana’s passing game, with the team averaging 327.3 yards per game, which is 15th in the country. If they can get some pressure on quarterback Peyton Ramsey, they should be able to keep Indiana’s air attack in check and force them to beat them on the ground.
